Seeing as we’re in a global recession, Madonna has come under fire for charging so much for concert tickets. Her response was cute. NME reports:
Madonna has shrugged off complaints that her live shows are too expensive and told her fans to “work all year” so they can spend their money on gig tickets. The singer is expected to tour this year in support of her new album ‘MDNA’, which is released on March 26, but told Newsweek that people should be prepared to save their cash and pay top prices if they wanted to see her in concert. She said: “Start saving your pennies now. People spend $300 (£190) on crazy things all the time, things like handbags. So work all year, scrape the money together and come to my show. I’m worth it.”
Please tell me this bitch wasn’t serious. If I’m paying $300 to see an aging, veiny hag gyrate her pelvis and lip sync in a pathetic attempt to stay relevant and hip, it better at least end in Adderall and nitrous oxide. Wait, who were we talking about again?
